Tabbed Nautilus In Ubuntu 8.10

Tabbed browsing in Nautilus is a dream come true.
While this may be old news for many readers it was recently 'discovered' by me in an accidental way.

But now I'm hooked. It's like tabbed Firefox and makes copying or moving files a breeze.
Open Documents then a new tab for Pictures.
Right click on a picture file in the Documents folder, tab over to the Pictures folder and paste!

And yes! Sometimes I'm a bit slow.

I have Tabbed Nautilis in Ubuntu 8,04. I never paid to much attention to this post till it hit me between the eyes.

You do?
Before I posted this article, I checked someone's computer that was running Hardy and they didn't have tabbed browsing at that time.

I told them that I had it in 8.10 and they were ready to upgrade. LOL!

I stumbled on the tabbed browsing by accident and it kind of threw me. Still forget about it sometimes.
Not used to all these luxuries.

Whoa, just discovered this myself. Double-middle-clicked on a folder and was all O.o afterwards...
